Merciful Release by Nick Kemp

Book Description

This study of the British euthanasia movement examines the delicate interplay of medicine, politics, philosophical debate, public opinion and the fluctuating fortunes of the euthanasia movement. It considers such diverse issues as eugenics, psychiatry, mental deficiency, sterilisation, the impact of the world wars and the Nazi "euthanasia" programme, and mercy-killing for the mentally incompetent. The author puts forward a convincing explanation of the persistent failure of attempts to legalise euthanasia and draws upon archival material and periodical literature.
